Health Tip: Why Babies Wake at Night

(HealthDay News) -- Many babies and young children struggle to sleep all night, which makes for tired parents.

The University of Michigan Health System says potential risk factors for night waking include:

  • Having birth complications, including premature birth.

  • Having a difficult temperament.

  • Being breast-fed.

  • Co-sleeping with parents.

  • Feeding at night, because the toddler requires it or it's become a habit.

  • Having family issues that involve stress or depression.
